My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
— Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, famous Gemini
Today, the Sun enters Gemini, sign of the Twins. Influenced by Mercury, who has thankfully come out of retrograde and who rules Gemini, the next thirty days are especially favorable for learning and studies of all kinds. This is one contributing reason why, for many centuries, Spring final exams have been held in late May and early June in Western countries. This time favors communications, and all enterprises that are opportunistic and flexible in nature.
According to some, Witches born under this sign are Jacks-of-all-trades. They’re trivia experts who keep an amazing amount of information about the strangest things in their brains. They are wonderful with words and scary-smart! They are true eclectics, following the creed that says, “The eclectic only steals from the very best.”
Geminis generally go with the flow and are very flexible with whatever is happening around them. However, this adaptability and their innate curiosity about, well, everything, can make it sometimes challenging for them to stay focused and see things through to completion.
They are the networkers in their communities, but need to watch out for a tendency to be gossipy and in everybody’s business. Their intentions are rarely malicious, though, and their ebullient personalities will eventually charm everyone’s forgiveness.
Telepathy comes naturally to a Gemini. They love to blog, Tweet, write and communicate their magical experiences, and they are born poets. They’re also the ones who are constantly on their iPhone and checking in on email. They simply love to be connected, and are usually technology whiz kids ( I chose this graphic just for you, Gemini!). You can almost bet that the friend of yours who is always the first one to snap up the cutting edge communications gadgets and toys is a Gemini.
Happy birthday to all you magical Twins!
